Couldn't let the day pass with no mention of the Let It Grow from today's 78 show.

Easily a Top Ten stand alone (i.e. not part of WRS) Let It Grow. Top 5 for me. It's raw, gritty, intense, whatever word you like to use. Jerry's playing is so full of pure unadulterated energy that it seems to spill over the edges almost to the point of sloppiness. He fans it all over the place and makes some long, hard, driving runs that seem to leave me dizzy. A must listen for any fan of guns blazing, take no prisoners Grateful Dead.

Great rec. Crazy energy from Jerry in this one. Just going for broke. Probably not the best ever, but a must-hear version.
